Alfred Hitchcock presents
Season 1 Ep.07: Breakdown
William Callew is involved in a bad traffic accident on a rural road, that leaves him so paralyzed he appears lifeless, and when help arrives they think he’s really dead.
The benign countenance of pudgy film director Alfred Hitchcock welcomed viewers to stories of terror, horror, suspense, and twisted endings for an entire decade.
His clipped British accent and catlike theme music became television standbys as the series was seen on two different networks and was later seen for years in syndication. The stories would often appear to end with evil triumphant, in strict violation of the television code of ethics. This situation was always resolved following the last commercial, when Hitchcock would return to explain, in his deadpan sardonic way, what silly mistake or chance occurance had finally done the villan in.
